Hope and Change in Obama’s Cuba: More than 70 dissidents arrested in another Sunday of violent repression


Obama’s Hope and Change continues to take its toll on Cuba’s human rights activists. The brutally repressive apartheid dictatorship, which President Obama has chosen to embrace and support, unleashed another wave of repression yesterday. This marks the 23rd consecutive Sunday of violent repression against peaceful dissidents where more than 70 human rights and democracy activists, the majority of them defenseless women from the Ladies in White were arrested. Their crime? Attempting to peacefully march in support of political prisoners and in protest of the dictatorship’s brutal repression.

It hasn’t even been a week since Pope Francis (aka Pope Che) left the island and the murderous Castro regime continues its brutality. Not that the papal visit (nor the Pope for that matter) did anything to stop or even slow down the rate of repression on the island; during the Pope’s few days in Cuba, hundreds of dissidents were violently arrested. But according to the Vatican, the Pope had no idea any of this was going on while it was taking place in front of his own eyes. It appears Pope Che suffers from the same vision problems that plagues President Obama.

  1. And why not? Castro, Inc. clearly stated it would not change in any way internally, and obviously the US was not put off or deterred by that in terms of going ahead with “normalization.” as if Cuba was indeed a normal country. Castro, Inc. is simply being true to itself, but what is the USA being true to?

  2. The leftist Madres de Plaza de Mayo who were never beaten up, dragged down the street, bruised, hauled off in buses to prisons, or killed won a Nobel Peace Prize, but the Damas de Blanca who have all of those abuses heaped on them are ignored.
